Are you in the packing stages of your upcoming move? Do you feel like you’ve hit a roadblock with your move because you are concerned about how you are going to properly pack your special pictures? Well, the simple solution is to let our professional movers at All Points Moving & Storage handle your upcoming move. The truth is that packing pictures is a part of your move that shouldn’t be overlooked. After all these pictures are what helps bring the look of your home all together and they can also be extremely fragile. Our moving experts have some tips that we’d like to share regarding how to properly pack pictures during your next move.
Choose the Right Cardboard Boxes
When packaging pictures during your next move, it’s important to invest in cardboard boxes that are the right size. Utilizing cardboard boxes that are too big leaves room for your pictures to move around during the move, which increases the likelihood of damage. There are specialty cardboard boxes, known as picture boxes, that are designed specifically for pictures that you may want to consider. These picture boxes are made of stronger, more durable cardboard, which helps add an extra layer of protection for your pictures.
The Magic of Bubble Wrap
You should never move your most precious pictures without bubble wrap. Once you have your pictures in the specific sized cardboard box, it is time to pull out the bubble wrap. Using bubble wrap, wrap the entire picture box for added protection. Using packing tape, secure the bubble wrap so that it doesn’t move around and your pictures should be all set!
Label Boxes as Fragile
At All Points Moving & Storage, we make sure to treat all boxes that you plan to move with care. To help us out, we definitely recommend labeling all of the boxes with pictures as fragile. This serves as an additional reminder to our moving team that this particular box needs to be handled with extra care. Every step counts when it comes to protecting your pictures, so don’t skip over this one!
As you can see, there is a lot that goes into packing up pictures for your upcoming move. If you would rather have our dedicated team at All Points Moving & Storage handle the packing of your pictures, just let us know. Otherwise, be sure to choose the right cardboard boxes, wrap with bubble wrap and mark the picture boxes as fragile.
